Birthplace: Not Available

Charles Dingle began acting in the first decade of the 20th century, and stayed at it until his last performance in 1955's The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell. His forte was playing brusque, seemingly above-reproach businessmen who'd sell their grandmothers to close a shady financial deal. Though he'd been cast in the New York-filmed One Third of a Nation (1939), Dingle's "official" movie debut was in 1941's The Little Foxes, recreating his stage role as the duplicitous Ben Hubbard. In this and many other film assignments, Charles Dingle lived up to critic Bosley Crowther's succinct description: "a perfect villain in respectable garb."
